Ghanaian striker Kwame Nzor is ruled out of FC Metz?s Ligue 1 clash with Jordan Ayew?s Lorient on Saturday night due to injury.
The former Ghana youth international has been excluded from the squad with a thigh problem.
He suffered the injury in April and has since been in the treatment room.
Nsor has managed only seven league appearances for the club this term largely due to his physical fragility.
Metz are second bottom on the Ligue 1 table are cannot afford to lose against Lorient which will confirm their demotion.
